Welcome to episode two of Challenge Mode!  It’s a series where we revisit video games, the culture surrounding them, and the people who play them!  Fun fact!  We recorded this before we had a name for the show!  We’re professionals!

In this episode we discuss our personal feelings on effort vs. reward in gaming, and provide some examples of what we feel works well and doesn’t! New episodes of Challenge Mode will go up every two weeks right here in the Gamer Heroes podcast feed, so keep it here for more Challenge Mode!  Enjoy, friends!

GH38 – Super Mario Odyssey First Impressions

GH20: Nintendo Dominating E3 2017

E3 is underway and the big presentations are done. We talk about how wrong or right our predictions were from last week, plus a detailed discussion on how the major players are doing, what games we are most excited for, and what has disappointed us the most so far.

We dive into Microsoft first with talk of the Xbox One X and all the teraflops you could ever want.

Then it’s off to Sony to take a look at the delayed Spider-Man game, plus a few other nuggets.

Ubisoft also brought a lot to the show, so we talk a bit about their games.

Finally, we tackle Nintendo which shocked many a fan with the precise 25 minutes presentation and various announcements throughout E3.

This is our first time going live with Gamer Heroes, so please bear with us if we run into any technical issues.

SH S3E05: Video Game Movie Adaptations

Sure, there’s been plenty of bad video games based on movies but we’ve also had our fair share of terrible movies based on video games. Jon of the Gamer Heroes podcast joins Ryan and myself to talk about some of the best and worst video game movie adaptations. We go back to the days of Super Mario Bros and Street Fighter all the way up to 2016’s Warcraft and Assassin’s Creed. See which ones we thought pulled it off and which ones we think were better left in the cartridge.
